Does the recent delay of a variety of Nikon cameras have you feeling down? Are you worried that the earthquake-related issues at Sony's imaging sensor plant will impact your ability to grab one of the new Nikon cameras? Well, if you're feeling impatient you can grab some excellent deals right now on Nikon D610, D750, and D810 cameras at B&H.

For starters, you can save $500 on the Nikon D610 and Nikon D810 camera bodies. That's already a great deal, but wait, there's more! In addition to your instant savings, you also get a free battery grip (which has a value of $225 for the D610 and $369 for the D810). With the D810 (priced at just under $2,800) you also get a 32GB SD card, a DSLR shoulder bag, and a third-party battery to go with your free first-party battery grip.

The Nikon D750's instant savings, meanwhile, are "only" $300, but this deal also comes with a variety of free goodies including a Nikon MB-D16 Multi Battery Pack, 16GB SD card, DSLR shoulder bag, and a third-party battery.

Put a D810 into your own hands for only $2,800. Included battery grip not shown here.

So what's really going on here, why are these deals so good and why now? It's hard to say for sure, but selling more full-frame DSLRs might help soften the financial blow that delaying products can have on a company. With Sony's image sensor plant still shut down, it's not clear how many cameras Nikon will be able to manufacture and get to market in the coming months (after all, they do rely on Sony image sensors for many products). This is of course all speculation, but the timing of these deals is interesting.

While we wait for more information on the much-anticipated Nikon DL-series of cameras and the other delayed cameras and hope that the D5 and D500 won't be affected by the recent earthquakes in Japan, there are at least three very good cameras available at excellent prices.
